The retirement community's master plan, still in refinement, will bring the capacity at Friendship Village Chesterfield to more than 450 apartment homes and villas.

Other renovations and upgrades to the current community continue highlighted by the completion in September, 2012, of $1 million refurbishments to the newly renamed Village Care Center, the skilled nursing and assisted living component of Friendship Village Chesterfield.

"Ongoing updates keep our communities an excellent choice for today's seniors. Many new features at Friendship Village Chesterfield include additional villas, a 250 seat theater, a bistro, and heated pool. The updated fitness center features personalized fitness plans," Mike Heselbarth, corporate operations director for the two local Friendship Village communities, said.

Nestled in the heart of Chesterfield at 15201 Olive Boulevard since 1974, Friendship Village Chesterfield, a not for profit senior living community governed by a local board of directors, benefits from management by Iowa based Life Care Services. The community provides vibrant choices for senior living by offering apartments and villas, assisted living and skilled nursing care.

Friendship Village's LifeCare program assures seniors independent living and unlimited days of assisted living and skilled nursing care on site -- if needed -- at a continuing predictable and known cost.

The financial model includes entrance fee options which vary with the type of residence, a refundable buy in option and low monthly charges. Multiple plans exist for tailoring to specific needs and requirements.

The sister community, Friendship Village Sunset Hills, broke ground in September on 10 new villas.
